Chamber of Commerce Losing Members Over Climate Change

A huge kudos to PNM, New Mexico's largest provider of electricity, for resigning its membership in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce because they disagree with the chamber's stance on climate change. The chamber is against any solution to global warming that could potentially increase the price of energy and recently threatened to sue the EPA if they didn't open up the science of climate change to "public debate".

The chamber lost California based PG&E; last week, who also quit because of the chamber's less-than-progressive take on climate change.
